Hi colleagues,After the final PharmCAS deadline expires on June 1, programs may continue to grant deadline extensions to individual applicants between June 2, 2022, and June 30, 2022.On June 2, the following language will be added to the PharmCAS application login page:
"Some schools may offer deadline extensions through June 30. Contact the program directly to request a deadline extension. Programs are not obligated to grant deadline extensions or give consideration to applicants who submit late application materials. You have 48-hours to complete and submit your PharmCAS application once the deadline extension is granted."Please review the following to determine which applicants need an individual deadline extension based on their current applicant status at your institution:
How to request a deadline extension:
The school can then share the invitation code with each applicant who has been approved for an individual deadline extension. The applicant must enter the invitation code into the application to select your program on the Add Program screen. Invitation codes will automatically expire once the 2021-2022 cycle closes on June 30, unless the school chooses an earlier expiration date, and are not unique to each applicant. Additionally, schools can run a report in WebAdMIT to view the list of applicants who have utilized invitation codes.Important Dates for the End of the 2021-2022 Cycle
Hi all,Based on the recent feedback received from schools, AACP and Liaison have modified the dates for the end of the current 2021-2022 cycle.The PharmCAS cycle is now set to close on July 5 (rather than June 30). Therefore, applicants have until July 5 to submit an application to schools that offer individual deadline extensions between June 2 and July 5. PharmCAS cannot extend final (enforced) deadlines past June 1, so schools are required to use individual deadline extensions during this window. PharmCAS will continue to process and verify newly Completed applications through July 10. (The 2022-2023 cycle will open on July 14.)PharmCAS Communication to Applicants: To help build awareness about the potential for individual deadline extensions at some schools, AACP has developed the following communication plan for June 2:
School Communication: Below are suggested options for schools that wish to consider applicants between June 2 and July 5:
We realize this has been an extremely challenging admissions cycle and hope these modest adjustments are helpful. Staff are also in the process of exploring other options for future cycles.
